Well I never!

I have just been reading interesting facts about the Peak District.  In the olden days, in the Peak District, some people used to decorate their wells, or even dress them in costumes (yes, the wells) in order to worship water gods.  Isn't that fascinating?  Maybe I should get out more...
 
I will endeavour to look for a better fact later in the week. 
 
I just asked my husband why it is called the Peak District,  as there aren't any impressive peaks (Mr Merchant has a PHD in Geography).  Anyway, he just rolled his eyes at me (metaphorically speaking), told me that I obviously don't really understand the word 'peak',  and claims that 'actually' the name has little to do with peaks. Now I feel slightly annoyed.
 
Hope you are all WELL!
 
Mrs Merchant
